Beach at Playa Potrero

Share with your Friends
A five-minute walk from the wonderful Playa Flamingo, Playa Potrero is a quiet gorgeous bay on the northern Pacific Coast of Guanacaste province. Found along Costa Rica’s ‘Gold Coast’, this tropical beach with its warm tranquil waters is an amazing place to hideaway from the hustle of city life. Around 7 km north of Playa Brasilito, Playa Potrero is just ten minutes from Playa Penca and Playa Prieta, with the fabulous five-star resort, the Melia Conchal nearby as well.

Come here to relax amid the peace and quiet, as this beach is not as crowded as the chic Playa Flamingo or Playa Brasilito. A great place to stay at with plenty of affordable and economical hotels, there are a few upscale hotels in Playa Potrero as well. Indulge in a variety of activities here such as swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sportsfishing, horseback riding and kayaking, or just simply go for a stroll or sunbathe along the shore. The sunsets here are a wonderful sight and should not be missed at any cost.

At the northern end of the beach is the tiny fishing community of Potrero. In close proximity to Playa Potrero is a small harbor from where you can hire a local Tico fisherman to go Marlin fishing or arrange short day trips to the surf hot spots of Witches Rock and Playa Naranjo. There are also a number of diving facilities available here as well as jet skis and other water sports equipment that you can rent out at the marina.
